A former Director of Strategic Planning and Operations at London Business School, his experience ranges from leadership development, Organisation Development (OD), and values and culture to team dynamics, change and personal effectiveness. As a consultant, he seeks simultaneously to help people be more human at work, and to support organisations to be more effective, impactful and successful.

He is passionate about making a demonstrable difference and leaving his client organisations stronger. Current and recent clients include the UK Civil Service, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, NHS England, Napp Pharmaceuticals, Sodexo, a global investment bank and NSPCC. Martin is also on the faculty of the NHS Leadership Academy.
